"Steve and Yvonne Weinzirl of Val-O-Mo Farm Inc. purchased Feed Supervisor software to help streamline their dairy’s feeding program. The Weinzirl’s currently milk 325 cows 3 times per day and mix feed for approximately 420 total head.
Steve is the general manager of the farm and his duties range from fieldwork and farm mechanic to managing the maternity pen and feeding the young calves. Jess is responsible for all aspects of mixing and feeding on the farm, bunk management and forage sampling. Yvonne is responsible for the financial management of the business and operates the office computer and Feed Supervisor Software. Yvonne tells us, “One of the very first things that we used Feed Supervisor for was to make our feeders aware of what was actually in the batches they were feeding out...We were all surprised at how different the final product was from what was intended.” Mixing errors were quickly corrected. For example, mixing errors with forages was cut from 10% to now only 5%. Watching DMI and daily production has tipped them off to problems before they became physically evident. Yvonne continues, “We also have an appreciation for how simple it has become to make ration changes or to alter the moistures of our forages...it is really handy to be able to go back and find out when we made certain ration changes without having to dig through a pile of papers.”
Jess has lowered the clean up target from 6-8% down to 3%. He adjusts the total pounds fed out daily at the scale, saving about 3.5 tons of feed per week. “We are wasting less feed and at the same time the herd has increased production about 10#/day!”"
